MSNBC confirms that President Obama used the federal government to spy on Donald Trump

Yesterday, on March 28, 2017, while speaking live on MSNBC, Evelyn Farkas, who had been Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense as part of President Obama’s administration, said that the Obama administration had spied on Donald Trump.

Here’s the video:

A quick online search shows that this has not so far been covered by the New York Times, the Washington Post, Associated Press, Reuters, or any other mainstream media source.

But the video is out there.

And even if YouTube takes it down, someone else will always be able to put it back up. If not on YouTube, then somewhere else instead.

This was live TV. Live TV sometimes has its “oops” moments, which, in today’s internet age, can never be totally covered up.

    Wish I could say I am shocked to hear this. This is exactly what I thought and would expect from the least transparent administration in history.

    The explanation was about preserving intel obtained so that Trump couldn’t tamper with it or destroy it. The intel is all the stuff the spies pick up on each and every day, even at this moment, and would include anything incriminating on Trump and gang. Obama didn’t have to, nor could he legally have, personally ordered any spying on Trump. There’s no story here except another paranoid fantasy right wingers want to spin.
